Acclaimed creator Kaoru Mori's tale of life on the nineteenth-century
Silk Road turns westward, following Englishman Mr. Smith on his long
journey to Ankara. Passing through a fishing village along the Aral Sea,
Smith and his guide encounter a pair of spirited young girls named
Laila and Leily-identical twins who are fishing not for sturgeon, but
for husbands! Despite their efforts to find two wealthy, healthy, and
handsome brothers to wed, Laila and Leily's plans generally only land
them in loads of trouble!
